VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage v6.7
3 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Data Center Virtualization

Course Details

The VMware vSAN: Deploy and Manage v6.7 is a three-day course, where you will focus on deploying and managing a software-defined storage solution with VMware vSANā„¢ 6.7. You learn how vSAN functions as an important component in the VMware software-defined Data Center. You gain practical experience with vSAN concepts through the completion of hands-on lab exercises. This course is also available in an On-Demand format.

Prerequisites

This course requires meeting one of the following prerequisites:

Experience working at the command line is helpful.

 

The course material presumes that a student can perform the following tasks with no assistance or guidance before enrolling in this course:

  • Use VMware vSphereĀ® Client
  • Create and manage VMware vCenter ServerĀ® objects, such as Data Centers, clusters, hosts, and virtual machines
  • Create and modify a standard switch
  • Create and modify a distributed switch
  • Connect a VMware ESXiā„¢ host to NAS, iSCSI, or Fibre Channel storage
